Not particularly at fault for any of United’s goals, but he was surprisingly slow off his line for Valencia’s strike. Should have closed the winger down but opted to stay on his line.
Put a foot in at key moments on a number of occasions and definitely won the physical battle with Hernandez, but should have been wise to Welbeck’s positioning when the England striker scored.
Like Bassong, he had the better of Hernandez when it came to the physical side of things, but had no answer to the Mexican’s movement.
Had a pretty torrid time in all honesty. Had absolutely no answer to Valencia when the Ecuadorian attacked him, and didn’t offer a great deal in attack when supporting Jarvis. An afternoon to forget.
Although he originally lined up on the right, he was forced to move inside when it was apparent United were dominating the centre of the field. Similarly to his teammates he had little effect against the masterful passing of Carrick and Scholes.
Looked to get forward whenever he could, but not to particularly great effect. His crossing was poor and he looked uncomfortable in possession. Was sent off just before halftime thanks to two silly tackles. The first being a wild lunge on Rooney, the second being a very similar one on Welbeck.
Fairly anonymous throughout. The United midfield controlled most of the match and he did little to counter that.
Powerful and energetic presence in the centre for Wolves. Put in a number of tackles and generally looked like his team's best central player, but was eventually replaced after Zubar got himself sent off.
Wolves’ only real threat going from forward from the midfield. Started brightly in the first-half, but as United’s technical superiority was made even more obvious by Zubar’s sending off, Jarvis had little effect.
Started up front, but moved to the right-hand side of midfield to help counteract United’s dominance in midfield. When on one particularly impressive run, but generally had a hard time against United’s on-form defenders.
Often found himself coming deep to get himself involved, but regularly lost possession. He had a thankless job up front by himself for much of the afternoon and caused neither Evans nor Ferdinand much bother.
Had very little to do all afternoon, but was forced into two saves in the second-half, brilliantly getting down to stop Kightly’s effort, then saving a Fletcher header.
Unusually quiet afternoon from the Frenchman. Didn’t attack that often and wasn’t attacked too much either. Came off for Fabio with about 20 minutes left.
Looked solid defensively for United and was also composed in attack as he opened the scoring for the visitors, volleying in following Carrick’s pass.
Attacked well and almost created a goal inside the first ten minutes after a great run down the right. Had his hands full with Jarvis, but dealt fairly well with the winger and did finish with an assist after crossing for Hernandez’s first.
United were so dominant that he didn’t have that much to deal with. Rarely truly troubled.
Not his most lively performance, but did his job well enough and passed immaculately as always. In the first-half he completed 31 passes from 32 attempted. Continued to control the match in the second-half and even made some well-timed tackles, although he also put in a few naughty ones too.
His passing was as solid as ever and he also picked up an assist as he cleverly peeled away to the back post at a corner, allowing him to set up Evans for the opener. Replaced by Pogba with about 30 minutes to go.
What a fantastic performance from the Ecuador international. Tormented Ward all afternoon, got himself a brilliant goal as he raced down the right and picked up two assists, one for Welbeck and another for Hernandez. His importance to United is so often understated.
The England star’s short passes were perhaps a little sloppy at times, but it was a typically all-action display from United’s top-scorer. Appeared all over the pitch and was often the starter of attacks, but couldn’t get his name on the scoresheet despite United’s rampant nature.
Very lively throughout and drew the foul that earned Ronaldo Zubar a second yellow card. Got United’s third as he found the bottom corner after Valencia’s low cross. Looks better and better every week.
Dropped deep, looked to get in behind the Wolves defence and linked well with his strike partners Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck. His effort was obvious, but not much went his way, until he headed in a Rafael cross, soon followed by volley from Valencia’s cross. Lethal in the penalty area.

Came on for Davis in the first-half soon after Zubar’s red card, but couldn’t really come up with an answer to United’s midfield.
Lively when he came on for Doyle, testing De Gea with a good shot and looked composed on the ball.
- 12 S. Hunt
Replaced Fletcher for the final eight minutes or so and had little time to make much of an impact.
- 40 B. Amos
Replaced goal-scorer Jonny Evans with about 15 minutes left. Swept up well, but didn’t have to do much.
Came on for Evra when the match was dead and buried, but had more to do than the Frenchman. Had to deal with the dangerous Kightly and was beaten a few times, but great into the match and looked feisty.
- 18 A. Young
- 13 Ji-Sung Park
Replaced Carrick just after United went 4-0 up and was typically tidy in possession. Getting more and more first-team minutes at the moment and made his third appearance in a week.
